The Capital of the Bantu Republi, Maputo, was the scene of the largest rally to date, an estimated 300,000 people marched on the Eduardo Mondlane University where the Bantu republic had temporarily placed its government while new parliament buildings were being built. In response President Tendai Afolayan mobilized local military forces to surround the university and to disperse the rally. As the crowds refused to be dispersed and continued to advance a single gunshot was fired by someone, resulting in the military opening fire of the crowds, causing a panic which dispersed the crowds. In the aftermath of the massacre 157 civilians were killed by gunfire along with 465 injuries, the ensuing panic resulted in a further 813 fatalities and 1,548 injuries.
